Compound is an innovative, technology-driven global real estate asset manager, backed by some of the best venture capital firms in the world.
We’re based in New York City, and we’ve built a team that does great work and has a great time doing it.
We believe that having a deep understanding of different cultures and lifestyles —whether related to race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, religion, economics, age, or sexual orientation—will be a key driver of our long-term success. Numerous studies have shown that cognitively diverse teams are better at innovation and decision-making. For example, McKinsey & Company's 2015 report, Why Diversity Matters, demonstrated that companies in the top quartile for gender, racial and ethnic diversity were more likely to produce financial returns above their national industry median.
The demographic composition of the investment industry bears very little resemblance to that of the real world. By intentionally building a diverse team, we're better equipped to understand diverse customers and communities--many of whom have been excluded from investing in the past. We can also see opportunities that others might not.
At Compound, diversity is not an "initiative;" it is fundamentally who we are. Achieving meaningful diversity means more than just finessing outward appearances or gaming measurable statistics; it's about bringing together people with a mix of unique experiences and opinions who might never otherwise meet--and encouraging the special alchemy that happens when they do.
When we add to our team, we look for talent in unconventional places and revisit exclusionary norms. We also make an extra effort to seek out and work with other companies who do more than pay lip service to diversity. We know that better results come from thinking differently and being thoughtfully inclusive even if that means going against the grain.
We're always interested in hearing from talented, creative problem-solvers who value the same things we do: relentlessness, integrity, kindness, and collaboration.
